Benham Brothers After HGTV Firing: 'We Love Homosexuals'
Following the axing of their upcoming HGTV house-flipping series Flip It Forward, brothers David and Jason Benham spoke with CNN's Erin Burnett regarding the abrupt end of their series (before it even aired) and their feelings towards HGTV and those that contested their anti-gay activism.
Apparently they've got nothing but love, y'all.
See what they had to say!
Asked if he stood by his words, David told Burnett: "Never have I ever spoken against homosexuals as individuals and gone against them. I speak about an agenda ... that is seeking to silence the voices of men and women of faith. That's what all this is about. "We love homosexuals and we love Muslims and we have absolutely nothing against the people," he emphasized.
When asked directly if he would be OK if a homosexual person wanted to marry someone they loved, he replied: "I would not be OK with that type of an action because in the scripture it's very clear that that would not honor God, nor is it good for human flourishing.
"It does not mean that I hate the person at all."
Rather than being angry, "Our heart breaks for HGTV," said Jason, adding that you are not allowed to have the "pro-family view" anymore. "I believe that HG was pushed into this. They were bullied. We felt that HG knew who we were.
We think there are plenty of gays and lesbians that might take issue with what Benham defines as "pro-family."
Still, what do you make of their comments, Instincters?
